Looks like the owner had never serious intentions of re-developing the pub himself and just went through the motions of the planning process to get the maximum price for his property. The whole row of houses, with their â€˜arsesâ€™ to the river are quite a sight!:eek: Maybe the Limerick City Council should acquire the whole row, demolish them and extend the river promenade over them? Pity that they blew â‚¬ 83 million on a â‚¬ 10 million sewerage pipe, canâ€™t be too much left in the kitty.
Any ideas yourself?
Fair enough, the houses backing onto the river do look a bit haphazard, I see one resident has his/her clothes hung out to dry aswell! Not a bad place to live though in fairness, the views of the castle must be nice! The thing is though, given a choice between maintaining the status quo or letting that hideous apartment block destroy the area, I think I could live with the houses, arses and all!
Your suggestion of a riverside promenade would be a much better option but sadly I think the quayside from Thomond bridge to Shannon bridge marks the limit of Limerick City Councils ambition, at least for now !
